But now, he has admitted that the infamous Madden curse is real. Hillis has been affected by a hamstring injury that has caused him to miss numerous games this season.

“No doubt about it,” Hillis said. “Things haven’t worked to my favor this year. There’s a few things that happened that made me believe in curses. Ain’t no doubt about it.”

It has taken Hillis nearly 15 weeks to finally feel healthy. He said blame the previous 14 weeks on the Madden curse.

“It’s kind of funny how things worked out, but at the end of the day, I’m really happy with where I’m at,” Hillis said. “I’m a truly happy person. When I look back on this 15, 20 years from now, I’m probably going to just laugh.”

He averaged 4.7 yards per game last week against the Baltimore Ravens, which was the highest of the season for him. He has averaged 105.5 yards per game in the past two games.
